Output Objects - Overview

Output Object is a specific object used for storing information on the compliance of an object in reference to the object CloudAware Policy. The output object is created every time when a corresponding input object is evaluated by a policy according to the status determined in a policy lifecycle.

Cloudaware supports 2 output objects at the moment - Cloudaware Benchmark Check for CIS Benchmark Policies (perspectively, for other benchmarks as well), and CloudAware Policy Violation for the rest of compliance policies.


The checkbox 'Lookup Field' shows whether an output object has a lookup to the object CloudAware Policy. 

The checkbox 'Output Fields Mapping Class' shows whether a specific class required for correct mapping is present. If present, this class will be used automatically when a policy is deployed and run. To request a class for a new output object type, please contact Cloudaware at

The tab 'Status' marks whether an object is available for being used as output.
